The Dean Crowe Theatre and Arts Centre will host a variety of public events on stage this November as Covid-19 public health measures ease.
To perform on Wednesday, November 3, at 8pm, The Iron Annie Literary Cabaret is a celebration of music, theatre and literature.
Based on Luke Cassidy’s debut novel Iron Annie, it tells the story of Aoife, a major figure in Dundalk’s small-town underworld, and her fatal attraction to Annie, a magnetic and elusive force that barged into her life. Think Reservoir Dogs meets Thelma and Louise meets The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
This production features Eleanor McLoughlin as Aoife, accompanied by musical performances by folk duo The Dandelion Few and newly-formed rock band False Slag. Directed by Peter Moreton, artistic director of the Applecart Arts Centre (London ), it is produced by Luke Cassidy, with production design by Marianne Thibault.
Tickets, priced €16.50/€11.50 including booking fees are available from www.deancrowetheatre.com
Still Voices Film Festival
Acclaimed director Terence Davies will attend the 2021 Still Voices Film Festival on Friday, November 5, for a special screening of his 1988 masterpiece Distant Voices, Still Lives which will be followed by a conversation between Davies and film critic John Maguire.
Now that Eileen, Maisie, and Tony are adults, their childhood memories – and in particular those associated with their father – are inconsistent. While Eileen clings to happier times, her siblings remember his brutal violent nature, which has been a major influence on their growth and development.
This troubled family must deal with the day-to-day alongside their past. Terence Davies creates a loving portrait with this partly autobiographical tale (shot in two sections ), and it was voted one of the greatest films by Sight & Sound.
Tickets, priced €10 plus booking fee go on sale from Friday, October 22, and are available on www.deancrowetheatre.com
